Plump, well-defined lips are an essential part of a youthful appearance. Yet, many women find themselves frustrated by the size or shape of their lips, especially as they get older and their upper lip seems to lengthen. If this sounds like you, a lip lift can help.
One of the most common signs of aging involves lax skin, loss of volume both in terms of soft tissue and bone in the face. As this occurs, the upper lip can appear to elongate because of the loss of support of the underlying maxilla bone. This has the effect of covering all of the upper teeth when the face is in repose.
This has the effect of giving the face an older appearance. While dermal fillers are a popular choice for women unhappy with thin, flat, or fading lips, injections alone cannot correct the effect of the lip position which is where a lip lift comes in.
A surgical lip lift from Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery can improve the overall appearance of the lips and mouth, creating volume and increasing the show of teeth in repose and when smiling. The procedure provides natural-looking results that restore balance to the features while adding a youthful appearance to the mouth.
